  • Unique among the churches in Taormina, this one is built on the remains of a 2nd or 3rd century BC Egyptian temple to Isis and Serapis. It's small, but the beautiful multi-colored alter with gold and ...  more »
  • Main feature of the church is the popularity, at least from what I could see, to get married there. For the rest: nice, but not worth a detour. 
  • A small Roman Catholic Church of St. Pancras (St. John. Pancratius Church) was built on the ruins of a Greek temple of Jupiter Serapis. It was built in the Baroque style in the second half of the year 1600. Its main façade is decorated with a monumental portal. Four stone staircase and two pairs of ionic columns with statues of Saints, bishops. Dark Interior contains the great gilded altar with the figure of St. Pancratius Church. On the side walls are small altars and wall paintings depicting scenes from the life of a Saint. In front of the Church is the courtyard and a little further the cemetery. It is an active parish church and are celebrated daily masses. Location in the Centre of Taormina is often visited.

  • Baroque is the first thing you'll think entering the Church of San Pancrazio. The altar is one of the most representative of this artistic movement. Little curiosity the church built on the ruins of the Greek temple of Jupiter Serapis, in fact the Church/Temple is facing East, are still visible inside the remains of the cella of the temple.
